A Whole New Airport for New York
The comprehensive $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport – comprising the construction of an entirely new airport on top of an existing one while keeping it fully operational – is the most significant new airport project in the United States in more than 20 years. It follows the vision outlined by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in 2015 to create a unified, 21st century terminal system with improved transportation access, 8 miles of roadway including 24 new bridges, additional airside taxiways and world-class passenger amenities. The overall $8 billion investment is 80% privately financed and LEED Silver certified.
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey is invested in developing minority, women-owned and small business enterprises. Our partners, LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the operator of Terminal B and Delta Air Lines, the operator of Terminals C & D, are seeking certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) contractors, vendors and consultants for the construction associated with the redevelopment project and operations and maintenance of the terminals.
We work with the Council for Airport Opportunity (CAO) whose mission is to identify and address the critical employment needs of the communities surrounding the New York and New Jersey Metropolitan airports, while at the same time responding to the hiring needs of the airport tenants and the aviation industry.
